Midnight Run Through Times Square
From time to time we love to share some of our favorite stories from the past, and Midnight Run Through Times Square is high on our list.
A little mischief and a lot of fun took place the night before an ESS Supercharger meet, held at AUTOcouture Motoring on a hot July night. Dustin from Mischief TV and some of the MAR crew cruised up for the weekend and we decided a midnight run through Manhattan was in store.
At 1:30 a.m., after cruising the streets of Manhattan, we selected a location in Times Square to park and hang out for a bit. With a lineup of beautiful, high performance BMW’s in tow, we drew a lot of attention. Tourists came by taking pictures with the BMW’s under the New York lights and the questions about the cars were endless. We definitely made an impression.
Now, as you know, parking in downtown Manhattan isn’t an easy feat, and being that we were parked there illegally, the NYPD did have to make an appearance. We were parked directly outside their Times Square station, which made their job easy. After multiple threats of towing our lineup of cars, we managed to sweet talk them into letting us stay for a bit. They stuck around and hung out, talking with us and showing their admiration towards the vehicles that we had lined up and down the street.
Our Midnight Run Through Times Square made for some great stories and a bunch of parking tickets. Not a bad way to start off an AUTOcouture Motoring event weekend.
You will see that our photos below are just as spectacular today as they were on this night. Maybe it’s time to make another Midnight Run Through Times Square. Who’s in?
